Dunedin Fireworks

Dunedin Firework Shows

Firework Professionals have been doing firework shows in Dunedin and the surrounding area for decades. Part time pyrotechnicians Chris Hilder and his son Reuben have been firing firework displays on our behalf for about 30 years. Some of the firework shows in the area have been quite a spectacle indeed.

Otago’s 151st Anniversary

For Otago’s 151st anniversary, Chris helped us fire a ground based show made up entirely of large calibre star shells, and the first helicopter based firework show seen in the South Island.

Helicopter Firework Shows

Helicopter firework shows are a rare and impressive spectacle, and the fireworks for Otago’s 151st anniversary was no exception. The fireworks were fired from a helicopter flying over Otago harbour and gave us the idea of creating fireworks birds using the fall of the fireworks to represent the wings of the birds. Suspended beneath the helicopter was our custom rig, loaded with a wide variety of firework effects aimed horizontally and further below this was a large firework sign reading “151”.

Firework Shows for a Range of Budgets

Maybe your event does not run to a helicopter, but there are a range of options. At Firework Professionals Ltd, we’ll work with you to see your event fully realized. Talk to us today.or take a look at our gallery.
